Monzon probably for me. Had a long reign as the number 1. Hagler very close second. As for Greb, he could well be the greatest, shame there is no footage which is why, out of them 3, at this moment in time, I have him as 3.

This is one list that I will never understand.

Either you think that Greb was an over rated hobo who was great for his time, but would be destroyed by more advanced modern fighters, or you think that Monzon and Hagler are pygmies when measured against the resume of the immortal Harry Greb.

How do you end up with Greb between the two of them?

Don't sweat it. It just means that you're naturally a fan of heavyweights, and you've been watching too many lighter weight guys. Go watch some Tim Witherspoon. Enjoy.

No doubt, but surely it is either:

1. Greb

2. Haglonzon

or:

1. Haglonzon

2. Greb

I don't think it's impossible to split them but I think it's pretty close so I guess it's just personal preference and of course very very close to these three there is Robinson and burley should I put greb below all great fighters that he preceded

Let's not forget Ketchel. Fleischer and others who saw both Greb and Ketchel rated Stanley the great middleweight.

H, since Nat Fleischer saw Ketchel fight ,he and others rated Ketchel as the greatest MW ever. Until near the end of his life a question in the Ring
Question column, Nat answered a reader asking who was the best MW. ?Fleischer answered Harry Greb... For what it's worth...
